comment Error from ps.map in GRASS. How to fix?
The command "r.info rastermapname" returned the expected information about the raster to the terminal, with no warnings or errors. It did not "bring up the interactive gui." It's not clear to me that it should have, however. Perhaps I misunderstood your previous comment. Should we move this to another forum? I'm content to keep this here, if it's the appropriate place.

comment Data management in GRASS from command line?
For others interested in learning about data management from the command line in grass, look up the documentation on the following commands: g.mapsets, g.mapset, g.list, g.gisenv, r.in.gdal, v.in.ogr.

I'm not entirely sure how best to test that. Could you please suggest a specific command for me to try?

comment Why can't I load more than 12 elevation files into NVIZ?
I don't think that I want to use the color parameter, as I want to visualize the data in the rasters as an animated time-series of elevation models. There is no real DEM involved (unless you count the rasters that I want to visualize as such). Because R=G=B for all pixels in images, it made sense to me to use a single channel.

I goofed; the elevation parameter was not actually used twice (just tried again to be sure). I've corrected that in the post.

comment How to set/save the extent of a map in QGIS?
I'll check that out, as it might work for me since I'm not interested in the on-screen animation from directly within QGIS, but rather I'm just using it to create the frames that I'll assemble with some other tool like ffmpeg.

comment How do I tell GRASS where to find Python?
Thank your for such a thorough and thoughtful answer. I might recompile GRASS myself after the deadline I'm currently working on has passed.

comment Data management in GRASS from command line?
Thanks for teaching me a new bash trick, I only knew how to do that with basename. Did you mean for it to trim the tif suffix (rather than .shp), since that should be the only suffix the loop sees?

I understand everything you've done there, except ${file%.shp}. Could you explain that for me?
